Hoosier Dem has advantage, but Trump could change that

A pro-family activist in Indiana believes Senator Joe Donnelly (D) has a much better chance of winning re-election because his Republican opponent has never won a statewide race. The one-term senator was elected in 2012 with just 50.4 percent of the vote, and many political pundits attribute that to […]

Micah Clark, executive director of the American Family Association of Indiana, says Braun was able to capture the pro-Trump vote “by saying he was for Trump, and he pointed out several votes of the incumbent congressmen that he thought were things that Hoosiers wouldn’t like on spending and other issues.”

“It’s going to be different race than the primary,” Clark asserts. “Braun may have had an easier time in the primary running for the Trump vote. I think in the fall it’s going to be more the middle vote; the more moderate people might actually defect and vote for Joe Donnelly. I’ve always believed that Donnelly won in Indiana four years ago because of Republican voters.”

It’s just a matter of when, where and how as states, casinos and others look to get their hands into an enormous barrel of cash containing billions of dollars.

To some extent, legislators in Indiana and Michigan have been preparing for the possibility of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that would give them the green light to allow legal sports gambling, which mostly has been restricted to Nevada and to a lesser extent in a few other states.

Though it might take a couple of years to sort out, sports betting will be rolling out of the shadows in states across the country.

The beat goes on: Pro-life entities vs. ObamaCare mandate

Organizations are winning battles over the “abortion pill mandate” implemented under ObamaCare, but the war isn’t yet over. The mandate in the Affordable Care Act began under the Obama administration and requires employers – regardless of their religious or moral convictions – to provide abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception through their health plans under threat of heavy penalties. […]

The Department of Justice, under the Trump administration, abandoned its defense of the mandate, which the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) implemented during the previous administration.

“We have several cases that we’re representing that the government hasn’t settled yet,” says attorney Kevin Theriot of Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). “We are in the process of trying to get the government to understand that this should be settled and get the court to sign off on the settlement. But there are organizations, like March for Life, that are not necessarily religious but have strong convictions against providing these abortion-causing drugs as part of their employee benefit plans – and they are still fighting their cases.
